Professor St.John made my first college science course not intimidating at all! She managed to make an 8 am enjoyable and broke down all of the information so clearly that I was able to succeed in this class. I thoroughly recommend her to anyone who is looking to take Biology 115.

Wendy St. John is the ideal professor! She is intelligent, well informed, humorous, communicates effectively, and has exemplary time management skills. Additionally, the course is a well structured course, we are learning about conservation topics in an order that makes sense and enables students to think critically about important issues.
